Pros uses aaa battery, colour screen, liquidmetal casing, scratch resistant, apple quality sound, alot of features
Cons The only one I could think of is the battery life because since it'll be running in colour on an aaa battery.
Summary I have been waiting for this player for quite some time, for sure when it comes out I am going to get it. I LOVE Sandisk I have previously purchased 2 of their older mp3 players and was very happy with it, and this ones seems to blow my other players away! FYI Sandisk uses the same audio chipset as Apple, so its sounds quality for one should be the same. This has a pretty colour lcd screen, though not big, its a big plus which will allow you to view photos and slideshows while listenning to music. I am pretty sure it will have album art too. It comes in a 2gig version aswell, highly durable made with liquidmetal technologies which is highly scratch resistant. It has an Fm tuner, and voice recorder. Well from my past experiences their headphones are garbage and break within a couple days. This player is coming out late March for US and Europe with as MSRP of
119.99$ US, I hope Canada gets it at the same time. SO in all this player is sexy inside and out! :P
Pros lightweight, inexpensive
Cons does not come with an armband
Summary This product is perfect and performs all of the functions it is designed for.
Pros Looks nice and has very decent sound quality.
Cons Due to it's instability, my Sansa c140 is practically worthless.
Summary I already have a 30gig 5G iPOd, which is very nice, but I wanted something I could use with a subscription service. I use Rhapsody to Go. I decided to try the Sandisk Sansa c140. I actually like its look and feel. It has very decent sound quality. I WANT to like this product, and maybe with a firmware update things will improve. However, with this product's serious instability issues, it is not worth your money at this point.Updated
I called SanDisk customer support (They actually answered promptly, and on a Sat. night, even), and the representative I spoke with told me that they have had others calling with similar problems with products from the c100 line. The good news, however, is that they are planning to release a firmware update sometime in the coming weeks that will hopefully resolve these issues. I will try to report back if that happens.
Pros Works with NiMH batteries.
Cons Uncomfortable shape for being in your pockets. Breaks EXTREMELY easily. (thin plastic) Battery life is very low. The screen oddly filled with dirt or something after a week. Syncing takes forever (5+ hours on 1 Gb for me) Headphones are crap.
Summary Seriously. Don't buy this. It's not worth it at half the price it says here. Believe me, I got it for only 35 bucks and still feel ripped off. Lasted 2 weeks before the thing shattered into pieces while snowboarding. I'm glad it's gone.

Pros Worked OK while it lasted
Cons Too Fragile
Summary My son bought this unit Refurbished. It worked OK, as far as I know, until he dropped it. Not off a tall building, mind you, but from waist level. The screen cracked, and the unit ceased to function.
